Voth was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Thursday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.
Voth returned from a broken nose in mid-June, but he's struggled to limit run production recently and has given up eight runs in 2.2 innings across his last three appearances. It's not clear whether the right-hander has tested positive for COVID-19, but he'll be away from the team while he's in the league's health and safety protocols.
Voth (nose) was activated from the 10-day injured list Friday, Matt Weyrich of NBC Sports Washington reports.
The right-hander underwent surgery after suffering a broken nose on a hit by pitch June 6, and he'll rejoin the Nationals after spending little more than the 10-day minimum on the shelf. Voth has a 2.73 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 29:10 K:BB across 29.2 innings and should work out of the bullpen, though he could be in the mix for spot starts depending how long Max Scherzer (groin) and Stephen Strasburg (neck) are sidelined.
Voth (nose) played catch on the field Sunday prior to the Nationals' 5-0 win over the Giants, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.
According to MLB.com, Voth has seen a dramatic reduction in the swelling around his fractured nose and left eye one week after being struck in the face by a pitch. Voth, who underwent surgery to reset his nose, is now beginning to ramp up again and could be ready to throw off a mound within the next few days. The 28-year-old should have a good chance to return from the injured list before the end of the month.
The Nationals placed Voth (nose) on the 10-day injured list Tuesday, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.
Voth suffered a fractured nose when he was hit in the face by a fastball Sunday. It's unclear whether this will be a minimum stay on the IL or he'll require a longer absence as his nose heals. Ryne Harper was recalled Tuesday to fill Voth's roster spot.
Voth has been diagnosed with a broken nose after being hit in the face by a pitch and forced to exit his Sunday start against the Phillies, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
Voth was tabbed to make a spot start with Stephen Strasburg landing on the injured list with a neck injury. The right-hander was removed in the third inning after a Vince Velasquez fastball hit him in the face during his at-bat. Manager Davey Martinez said that Voth will stay in Philadelphia on Sunday night to get his nose reset. It's unclear how the nose issue will affect his availability going forward or whether he'll require an IL stint.
Voth was removed in the top of the third inning of Sunday's game against the Phillies after he was hit in the face by a Vince Velasquez pitch during an at-bat, Maria Torres of The Athletic reports.
Summoned from the bullpen to make a spot start in place of Stephen Strasburg (neck), Voth struck out two over a perfect two innings and appeared poised to come back out for a third frame. However, he didn't get the opportunity after taking a 90 mile-per-hour Velasquez offering to the front of his helmet, with the ball then deflecting off the left side of his face. Though sporting a bloody nose, Voth was able to walk off the field under his own power, but he'll likely be subject to X-rays and concussion tests before the Nationals provide an updated diagnosis of his injury.
Manager Dave Martinez said Voth will start Sunday's game against the Phillies, which the Nationals will treat as a bullpen day, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports.
After the Nationals elected to send Erick Fedde (COVID-19 injured list) out for a minor-league rehab start Saturday, Voth became the logical choice to pick up a spot start in place of Stephen Strasburg (neck), who was moved back to the IL a few days ago. After Strasburg recorded just four outs in his start June 1 before exiting with the neck strain, Voth stepped in to cover a season-high three innings of long relief. The Nationals apparently don't plan to stretch Voth out much further than that for Sunday's start, as Martinez said the right-hander will likely cover 2-to-3 innings before giving way to the bullpen, according to Maria Torres of The Athletic.
Voth (2-0) picked up the win in Tuesday's 11-6 victory over Atlanta, giving up two runs on one hit and one walk over three innings of relief. He struck out three.
After Stephen Strasburg (neck) lasted only 1.1 innings before being forced from the game, Voth was called in and pitched well until serving up a two-run shot to Ronald Acuna in the fifth. If Strasburg once again misses time, Erick Fedde (COVID-19) would be the likely replacement in the rotation, with Voth remaining in his long relief role -- especially considering he's got a 5.25 ERA and has been tagged for five homers over his last 12 innings.
Voth (1-0) picked up the win in a 5-3 victory over the Reds, a game suspended by rain and completed Thursday afternoon. He gave up two hits over two scoreless innings while striking out one.
Joe Ross got the start Wednesday night and blanked the Reds over four innings, and Voth picked up where Ross left off when the game resumed. Voth hasn't gotten a chance to start yet this season but has been solid in long relief, posting a 2.28 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 24:9 K:BB over 16 appearances and 23.2 innings.
Voth gave up one hit and struck out four over three scoreless innings of relief in Sunday's loss to the Mets.
The Nats were already down 4-0 when Voth entered the game with a runner on base and nobody out in the fifth inning, but the right-hander turned in his best outing of the season to prevent things from getting worse. Voth has a 2.08 ERA and 10:4 K:BB through 8.2 innings, but as long as he's working low-leverage situations in long relief, his fantasy value will be minimal.
Voth has a 1.93 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 4:3 K:BB through 4.2 innings over four appearances to begin the season.
The right-hander has gotten anywhere from two to six outs in his appearances, none of which have come in high-leverage situations, and he has yet to record a hold, save or decision of any kind. Voth doesn't appear to be an option for spot starts either, giving him few paths to fantasy value.
Voth appears set to open the season in a long-relief role.
The right-hander lost out on his bid for the No. 5 starter role, but he should still begin the season in the majors. Voth has had an unimpressive spring, posting a 5.40 ERA and 9:5 K:BB over 11.2 innings, but with Jon Lester (neck) still not fully stretched out, Joe Ross potentially having his workload monitored after opting out of 2020, and Stephen Strasburg and Max Scherzer holding more injury risk than other pitchers, there could be plenty of long-relief work available in the early part of the season.
Voth would be an option for the final spot if the Nationals open the season with a six-man rotation, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
The right-hander is currently battling Joe Ross and Erick Fedde for the No. 5 job, but with Jon Lester (thyroid surgery) now questionable for Opening Day another spot could open up, and given the overall state of the team's veteran and injury-prone top of the rotation, all three could wind up getting turns in the early part of the season. The Nats also only have two scheduled off days over the first three weeks, giving them extra incentive to take it easy on the likes of Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg. Voth made 11 starts in 2020, but his 6.34 ERA and 1.51 WHIP over 49.2 innings limit him to being a deep-league streaming option at best even if he does break camp in the rotation.
Voth (2-5) yielded four runs on nine hits over five innings Sunday, striking out four and earning the win over the Mets.
While it wasn't the cleanest outing for Voth, the Nationals scored 15 runs, including 12 in the first three innings, to give him plenty of support. The 28-year-old righty allowed two homers, one to Pete Alonso and another to Guillermo Heredia, in the first two frames. Voth finishes the 2020 campaign with a 6.34 ERA and 44:18 K:BB over 49.2 innings.
Voth (1-5) picked up the win in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Phillies, allowing one run on three hits and a walk over seven innings. He struck out a season-high seven.
It goes into the books as a complete game, and Voth has now delivered two straight one-run outings. The hot streak has only lowered his ERA to 6.25, however, and the lone run against him Tuesday came on a solo shot by Jean Segura -- the 12th homer Voth has served up in 44.2 innings. He'll get one more turn on the mound this season as the Nats host the Mets on Sunday.
Voth allowed one run on four hits and three walks over five innings during Wednesday's extra-inning win over the Rays. He had six strikeouts and didn't factor in the decision.
The right-hander surrendered a run during the first inning but blanked Tampa Bay over the next four frames. Voth has a 7.17 ERA, 1.65 WHIP and 33:17 K:BB through 37.2 innings and lines up to pitch against the Phillies on Monday.
Voth allowed three runs on two hits and two walks across 4.1 innings pitched in Thursday's loss to the Braves. He struck out four and did not factor in the decision.
Things were looking great for Voth in the early parts of Thursday's outing. The right-hander retired the first nine batters he faced, while the Nats spotted him a 5-0 lead. Unfortunately, Voth seemed to lose his command in the fourth, as he walked two and allowed a two-run homer to Freddie Freeman. He struck out Nick Markakis to begin the fifth but was pulled a batter later after hitting Tyler Flowers. The 28-year-old was charged with one more run when Ronald Acuna took Wander Suero deep for a two-run homer. Voth will once again try for his first win when he takes the ball Wednesday against the Rays.
Voth (0-5) took the loss in the first game of Friday's doubleheader against Atlanta, coughing up five runs on seven hits -- including three home runs -- and two walks over 4.2 innings. He struck out five.
Ronald Acuna took him deep twice and Dansby Swanson once, and Voth has now served up 10 homers in only 28.1 innings this season. His 8.26 ERA and 1.80 WHIP are just as awful, but the Nats don't have any better rotation options right now unless they decide to start the service-time clocks on top prospects like Jackson Rutledge and Cade Cavalli. Voth's next outing is scheduled for Thursday, at home in a rematch against Atlanta.
Voth will start Game 1 of Friday's doubleheader against Atlanta, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
He has given up 19 earned runs over his last 13.2 innings (four starts), and while the Nationals would love to upgrade his spot in the rotation, they don't have many viable alternatives. Wil Crowe, who is starting Game 2 as the 29th man, could potentially displace Voth if he impresses in his second MLB outing.
Voth (0-4) took the loss against Boston on Sunday, allowing five runs on six hits and a walk across two innings. He struck out three.
Voth has now allowed 19 runs in 13.2 innings over his last four starts. No announcement has been made about whether the right-hander will stay in the rotation going forward, but it would come as no surprise if Washington decides to look elsewhere for innings. If Voth manages to make another start, it will likely come Friday in Atlanta.
